This is where it begins.
Saturday invites are fun and exciting, but our most important races are the league meets. These meets count!
The Sierra League has traditionally been a very strong, so much so that last year, Ayala finished third in our league and went on to finish third in CIF Div II and fourth in the state in Div II! Going into the meet, we and Ayala, who have both been ranked in CIF Div II, are the favorites, with Chino Hills slotted third and Diamond Bar, Damien, and Chino looking to move up. Individually, the top returning runner’s are Ayala senior Tyler Reed, who is the former course record holder, Tartan senior Corey Bullock, and Chino senior Armando Villalobos. But of course, none of this matters once the gun goes off – it’s all about who gets to the line first about 16 minutes later.
The six Sierra League schools compete at three levels for boys and two for girls. Race times: Boys JV – 4:15; Girls JV – 4:20; Boys Frosh/Soph – 4:50; Girls Varsity – 5:20; Boys Varsity – 5:50.
All athletes will travel to the meet on the bus which will leave from GHS on Circle Drive at 2:25 and athletes will be released from class at 2:15. Athletes should eat a full lunch and bring a snack to eat two hours before their race and plenty of water to drink throughout the day. Athletes may return home on the bus or with their parents, but only after the conclusion of the meet.
You can find full meet information at the “2008 Annotated Schedule” link on the right of this page, but just to highlight, remember that Bonelli Park has an $8 per car entry fee. The nearest free parking is in the Park and Ride lot just west of the freeway and the Via Verde/Raging Waters offramp.
Time to win, Tartans.
